ASHRAE- Zero Energy Building Multi-family Housing

  • 7 Apr 2021

ASHRAE monthly speaker meeting featuring Paul Torcellini with National Renewable Energy Laboratory.

Multifamily is one of the largest growing commercial building sectors. For the past two years, ASHRAE, with AIA, USGBC, and IES have been working on an Advanced Energy Design Guide for zero energy multifamily buildings. This zero energy guide focuses on what is needed to achieve zero energy in multifamily buildings over four stories. The session will focus on the EUI targets focusing on the selection and design of the HVAC systems. It will also cover lighting, plug loads, and envelope design as it applies to the HVAC system to ensure that the multifamily can be built to the zero energy target. How-to tips and practical advice will be presented as well as successful zero energy case studies.

Paul Torcellini has 30 years of experience examining how energy is used in buildings including delivery mechanisms, design, system integration, and operations. His focus is on creating buildings that have minimal environmental impact because of their operations including very low energy buildings and zero energy buildings.
